Upon hearing of a large count of Bald Eagles along a local river, I decided to drive down to see what I could find. Unfortunately, as in the past, my arrival was greeted by seeing only three that day. Even the pair which I photographed would have been missed had I not spoken with another photographer who was taking photographs of them. I turned my car around, positioned myself behind the other car, and started to take photographs. Only to find that my autofocus was not working. Once they took off, I continued on to look for more. I found only one, but it was obscured by brush, and the lighting was not conducive to photography. I made a stop in one of the only parking areas along that part of the river, and managed to fix the autofocus problem. I was on my way home when the pair which I photographed earlier were back in the same tree. What a difference with the autofocus now working! To my surprise, this was the last photo taken by me while turning the focus ring manually.
